I think you'll settle down, start a family, and make begrudging peace with "the system" despite your revolutionary and rebellious tendencies as a young man. Additionally, you'll probably work a fairly mundane job to put bread on the table, and what little rebel is left in you after years of disillusionment with "the real world" will continually wish to do great things. As a result, you'll probably be stuck in a long and premature midlife crisis wherein you seek validation through various unorthodox projects that you may or may not have the time, resources, and patience to see all the way through. Ultimately, you'll settle into a routine that leaves you fairly content, though not necessarily as satisfied as you would like to be, especially in those rare moments where you think back to days like this and wish you'd turned your big, crazy dreams into big, crazy reality.

I wonder how many Republicans are secretly atheist libertarians who hate the public persona they have to assume in order to win elections...

I think it's more likely Cody will end up being a lawyer of some sort rather than a scumbag politician.

The next Ron Paul. The hope of libertarians every where, making runs at the highest office in the land, but getting shutout by the other two parties in a conspiracy theory.

You know all the people that were young during the 60s? How many of them are still hippies, and how many of them work for some corporation? And how many of the ones working for some corporation do you think felt the same way you do about corporate life when they were young?

I actually have no desire to go to law school. Of course, preferences can change on a dime for someone as young as I. Actually, there are, from what I hear, a lot of law school recruiters at Ethics Bowl nationals, which means someone might try to scout me. :P
